New York, NY – After years of waiting, the Ultimate Fighting Championship [UFC] has finally arrived to New York City’s. Taking place at Madison Square Garden, UFC 205: ALVAREZ vs. MCGREGOR has the potential to be one of the best cards of the year and if we’re lucky… ever.

Before the main event card kicks off, the preliminary fights are currently taking place. After two fights that went the distance, the last two fights have ended with spectacular and brutal knockouts. Here’s the results of the three-round fights that have taken place…

  • Bantamweight Bout: Liz Carmouche beat Katlyn Chookaglan by split decision.
  • Catchweight Bout: Jim Miller defeated Thiago Alves by unanimous decision.
  • Welterweight Bout: Vicente Luque defeated Belal Muhammad by knockout.
  • Middleweight Bout: Tim Boetsch defeated Rafael Natal by knockout.

With the action taking place at MetLife Stadium, I can’t help but wonder if I’ll run into my friend John Stone. At 89-years-young, John is an attorney whose been a Jets fan dating back to the days they were the Titans.

Not only was the food fantastic, it was marvelous. In addition, mingling with John’s family and friends was a memorable experience. For the record, the New York Jets defeated the Baltimore Ravens 24-16.

With that said, here’s my tailgate photos…
